Cyberinfrastructure integrates advanced computer, information, and communication technologies to empower computation-based and data-driven scientific practice and improve the synthesis and analysis of scientific data in a collaborative and shared fashion. As such, it now represents a paradigm shift in scientific research that has facilitated easy access to computational utilities and streamlined collaboration across distance and disciplines, thereby enabling scientific breakthroughs to be reached more quickly and efficiently. Spatial cyberinfrastructure seeks to resolve longstanding complex problems of handling and analyzing massive and heterogeneous spatial datasets as well as the necessity and benefits of sharing spatial data flexibly and securely. This article provides an overview and potential future directions of spatial cyberinfrastructure. The remaining four articles of the special feature are introduced and situated in the context of providing empirical examples of how spatial cyberinfrastructure is extending and enhancing scientific practice for improved synthesis and analysis of both physical and social science data. The primary focus of the articles is spatial analyses using distributed and high-performance computing, sensor networks...

A fundamental goal of cyberinfrastructure (CI) is the integration of computing hardware, software, and network technology, along with data, information management, and human resources to advance scholarship and research. Such integration creates opportunities for researchers, educators, and learners to share ideas, expertise, tools, and facilities in new and powerful ways that cannot be realized if each of these components is applied independently. Bridging the gap between the reality of CI today and its potential in the immediate future is critical to building a balanced CI ecosystem that can support future scholarship and research. This report summarizes the observations and recommendations from a workshop in July 2008 sponsored by the EDUCAUSE Net@EDU Campus Cyberinfrastructure Working Group (CCI) and the Coalition for Academic Scientific Computation (CASC). The invitational workshop was hosted at the University Place Conference Center on the IUPUI campus in Indianapolis. Over 50 individuals representing a cross-section of faculty, senior campus information technology leaders, national lab directors, and other CI experts attended. The workshop focused on the challenges that must be addressed to build a coherent CI from the local to the national level...

Cyberinfrastructure is a word commonly used but lacking a single, precise definition. One recognizes intuitively the analogy with infrastructure, and the use of cyber to refer to thinking or computing ??? but what exactly is cyberinfrastructure as opposed to information technology infrastructure? Indiana University has developed one of the more widely cited definitions of cyberinfrastructure: "Cyberinfrastructure consists of computing systems, data storage systems, advanced instruments and data repositories, visualization environments, and people, all linked together by software and high performance networks to improve research productivity and enable breakthroughs not otherwise possible." A second definition, more inclusive of scholarship generally and educational activities, has also been published and is useful in describing cyberinfrastructure: "Cyberinfrastructure consists of systems, data and information management, advanced instruments, visualization environments, and people, all linked together by software and advanced networks to improve scholarly productivity and enable knowledge breakthroughs and discoveries not otherwise possible." In this paper, we describe the origin of the term cyberinfrastructure based on the history of the root word infrastructure...

In an effort to systematically investigate requirements for TeraGrid XD, the XROADS collaboration held during 2009 a series of requirements elicitation meetings (REM) with small groups of stakeholders. This report summarizes the conduct of and results from a requirements elicitation meeting on the topics of campus bridging and campus cyberinfrastructure. The meeting???s goal was to develop a clearer and more functional definition of what the next phase of the TeraGrid should do to be a resource broadly useful to and used by university and college campuses throughout the US.; This report depends very much on the prior involvement of several XROADS partners in the TeraGrid, which has been funded in part by the NSF via the following grant awards: 0504086, 0503697, and 0742145 to the University of Chicago; 0451237 and 0504075 to Indiana University; and 0122272, 0332113, 0451566, 0503944, 0910847 to the University of California San Diego.

The mission of the National Science Foundation (NSF) Advisory Committee on Cyberinfrastructure (ACCI) is to advise the NSF as a whole on matters related to vision and strategy regarding cyberinfrastructure (CI). In early 2009 the ACCI charged six task forces with making recommendations to the NSF in strategic areas of cyberinfrastructure: Campus Bridging; Cyberlearning and Workforce Development; Data and Visualization; Grand Challenges; High Performance Computing (HPC); and Software for Science and Engineering. Each task force was asked to offer advice on the basis of which the NSF would modify existing programs and create new programs. This document is the final, overall report of the Task Force on Campus Bridging.; National Science Foundation

IU has a proud tradition in open access to its research computing and cyberinfrastructure (CI) facilities, going back to the precedents set by Marshall Wrubel (appointed the first permanent director of the IU Research Computing Center in 1955). Starting in 1997 President Myles Brand and then-Vice President Michael McRobbie initiated a tremendous acceleration in growth of IU???s cyberinfrastructure facilities through developing and then executing the first Indiana University Information Technology Strategic Plan. Through a decade and a half of purposeful execution of excellent strategies in support for research and scholarly activities generally, University Information Technology Services (UITS) has provided exceptional support to a group of researchers. This includes usage from disciplines that are among the traditional users of high performance computing ??? physics, chemistry, and astronomy, as well as emerging areas of application of HPC including biology, business, and the arts.

This report presents information on the activities of the Research Technologies Division of UITS and the National Center for Genome Analysis Support, two cyberinfrastructure and service centers of the Pervasive Technology Institute. Research Technologies (RT) is a subunit of University Information Technology Services (UITS) and it operates and supports the largest computational, data, and visualization systems at IU. The National Center for Genome Analysis Support (NCGAS) is primarily federally funded, serving the national community of genome scientists. NCGAS leadership is drawn from the Office of the Vice President for Information Technology, UITS, the College, and the School of Informatics and Computing. This report focuses on contributions of RT and NCGAS to accomplishment of IU’s bicentennial goals, and is organized according to those goals. Together the activities of NCGAS and RT represent a large share of the activities of PTI in support of the IU community. PTI’s Research Centers (Data to Insight Center, Digital Science Center, and the Center for Applies Cybersecurity Research) also provide support to the IU community in various forms but the primary focus of these research centers is informatics, information technology...

The recently coined term cyberinfrastructure describes the global information technology environments in which capabilities of the highest level of computing tools would be available to researchers in an interoperable network. It refers to what is required for a knowledge economy in the information age. Join Dr. Diaz-Herrera as he discusses the fundamental elements and complexities of Cyberinfrastructure, both from a computing point of view and the enduser’s. He will present several examples from various domains.
